Stressed from Packing!!!! UGHHHHH
Posted 14 June 2009 - 07:59 PM
We have a $hitload of stuff that we are taking with us.
All the OOT bag items, Bridal party gifts, Rafia Fans, Maracca place settings....& etc....
We decided to start packing tonight, because we wanted to weigh the bags to be sure they weren't over 50 pounds and we wanted to make sure we weren't stressing last minute about where all our stuff is going to go....
WELL 6 bags later...(4 checked in bags and 2 carry ons) we still need one more piece of luggage!!!
The problem is, if we check in another bag it;s going to be an xtra $100...Umm..Yea right...So my Best friend is lending us a smaller suitcase that she has extra & we have asked my mom & stepdad to take this bag, since they are the only people arriving the same day as us.
Out of the 6 bags we have, only ONE bag has BOTH of our clothes in it. We literally had to Roll every single item that we were taking so it would fit. We are staying week, so that's alot of clothes! Thankfully, I am taking lots of dresses, so it worked out, but I feel like I had to nix some things that I may want while I am down there..And I feel like I am forgetting everything
We weren't able to pack any of Joe's shorts, our underwear, none of our shoes and I am about to go make all of my BM's Shirts (Iron on letters) and my Ring boy & Flower girl shirt too, so they will need to be packed. Not to mention a couple miscellaneous things.
After all that is said & done and we figure out that we'll get the extra bag from my BF and my mom will take it, I start to relax and I'm just happy that we settled it....I look over to my End table and I see the Velvet box that holds our engraved Toasting Flutes my sister got us for my Bridal shower. WTF...They HAVE to be a carry on item as I don't trust checking that in.
I guess now since I am allowed to take one carry on bag(Which is JAM packed) and a purse, I will have to go & buy a nice size purse so that will fit.
I really went over board with the amount of things I bought. Although, I don't regret any of it. I wanted it all and if it gets there in one piece with no trouble, then I will forget this day..LOL
But I really didn't think it would be this stressfull to pack and I know I had a lot of stuff, but I honestly thought I would start to pack and be pleasantly surprised & we would maybe even have extra luggage left. HA! Out of 9 pieces of luggage(two sets)..we have a small tolietry bag & a slight bigger bag left.
I can't wait to be in Mexico!!! Agghhhhhhh
Thanks for listening to me Vent

I think I am more stressed at the thought of when we get to Cancun.
How the HELL are we suppose to get all 6 of our bags, plus my Wedding dress, Laptop bag and my "purse" AKA another carry on bag..From the airport to our car waiting for us outside the airport.
I guess we'll have to get one of those carts, but I've never been to the Cancun airport, so this is going to be really interesting.
My Biggest fear is forgetting something important. So as long as we have all of the important stuff..I will be happy

The hardest part was staying under the 50lb weight limit for our airline, but it all worked out.
